It is actually a piece of trash, if the customer is presented a device, which only brings problems while it should do nothing but serve and work. How can it be that I have to look around for possibly missing files etc. as well as troubleshooting on internet while the device comes even with an installation-CD ?!?
And plus, how can it be for a manufacturer not to make a simple device such as a USB-stick (a bloody mobile flash storage device, that's what technically seen the thingy is) work properly and without big business ? Even more so at such a price.
Fiddled for an eve to make my girl's player work on the notebook. Zero and endless nerves; and I am really no greeny as to computers and all the tech. Samsung's been always good for reliable products with little hassle, but the handling of this device really shoots the lion.
My advice can only be either hands off or straight to the bin with it - alternatively right out of the window !

I have just cracked this problem with help from samsung , i got xp home version and could not use my new yp-u3 jzb player .
samsung told me that you need media player 10 or above and also service pack2 plus the usual "does your computer meet the requirements" stuff . anyway this is the breakthrough, they also told me that i may need this , an MTP PORTING KIT from microsoft and yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee it worked . here is the link
you will need to validate your copy of windows to get it.
after you install the porting kit go to DEVICE MANAGER and reinstall the drivers for the player and thats it , it should work , it worked for me..shame samsung don't mention this on their website, it would save alot of grief...

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
